Junji Ito meets Mary Shelley! The master of horror manga bends all his skill into bringing the anguished and solitary monster -- and the fouler beast who created him -- to life with the brilliantly detailed chiaroscuro he is known for. Also included are six tales of Oshikiri -- a high school student who lives in a decaying mansion connected to a haunted parallel world. Uncanny doppelgangers, unfortunately murdered friends, and a whole lot more are in store for him. Bonus: Ito's dog! Thrill to the adventures of Non-non Ito, an adorable Maltese!
